Best Jiu Jitsu Gift Ideas Perfect for the BJJ Lover 2023

If you are looking for a gift for that special person who loves Jiu Jitsu, what should you buy that is BJJ focused and unique and special?  Whether shopping for holidays like Christmas or that special Jiujiteiro’s birthday (Brazilian slang for Jiu Jitsu practitioner) , what gift would they love they don’t already own?

Fear not, we compiled a list of unique, cool and slightly unusual jiu jitsu related gift ideas that fit all budgets.

$ affordable

$$ splurge

$$$ extravagant 

GI

Normally a gift of a Gi for the Jiu Jitsu lover (whether your significant other, lover or instructor or maybe all of the above) would be a good gift and appreciative but let’s face it they may have a closet full of gis already and what you are *thinking* about buying them may not be all that unique. 

However these gis would make for a very special gift and would make any Jiujiteiro happy.

Origin Gis

Origin Gis are very unique gis made 100% and sourced material from the USA. From spinning the fabric, cutting and sewing the garment, Origin is the only Gi manufacturer that can claim this.

Origin gi has the most unique weave and can best be described as a luxurious bathrobe feel but built for grappling. The gi is soft and supple yet durable. They are very unique and I feel like only black belts rock this gi for the most part (or the Jocko wannabe whitebelt 🙂 …)

An origin gi would be a very safe choice as a present.

SHOYOROLL

The next coveted gi brand that is truly unique (and another black belt favorite) is ShoYoRoll.  Shoyoroll makes a very limited run of its gis and typically these are very hard to find on the mats.  

I feel whoever wears one instantly gets a +50 point skill level increase (or at least looks like it).  These gis are very trendy and any Jiujiterio would love one.

Shoyoroll also does collabs and this one is especially beautiful.  I personally saw this gi on the mats and the black belt who was wearing this looked like a modern day samurai (complete with Man Bun).  This gi is special.

NO GI

For the no gi lover out there we got you covered.  What is no gi you ask? versus gi? 

Well if your giftee loves Brazilian jiu jitsu and trains like he is going to the beach in his surf trunks and rash guard (as opposed to looking like they are leaving the house in pajama loungewear) then these gift ideas are for you.

These no gi collections are pretty unique, sure to have their teammates asking where they scored the gear.

MA1 Combat

First up anything attached to Craig Jones and MA1 Combat is sure to raise the fun meter on the mats and off.  These looks are very unique and not everyone is confident to rock it so be sure you really know who you are buying this for.

VHTS

VHTS (Very Hard To Submit) based in New York is another brand that melds high fashion with BJJ.  These kits are sure to impress.

ENOIS

Enois is a boutique brand based in LA.  They have some very cool looking No Gi grappling gear and especially love the ¾ rashguards and surf trunk like shorts.

WAR TRIBE GEAR

If your giftee jiujiteiro is most likely to have a punisher sticker on their truck, black rifle coffee in the brew and loves to listen to Jocko podcast then Wartribe gear would be a good choice.

RVCA

For the surf inspired connoisseur these looks would definitely be right up their alley.
